About the Starcross Steamer
You can only enter through through the club's websitewww.starcrossyc.org.uk and, due to popularity, are capped this year at 100 entries. If you enter and are unable to attend, please let us know and we can pass the entry on to the next person on the waiting list.
The entry fee of £10 is payable at the Club on the day. The Sailing Instructions, Notice of Race, Handicap Numbers and Consent Forms are also available on the club website. Your start time will be calculated on the day when we know the handicap of the slowest boat.

Prizes supplied by our sponsors Exe Sails & Covers.
The Exe estuary is sheltered and only extreme weather conditions prevent us from sailing. You can be sure of a warm welcome at the club, food and drink will be available all day, so why not bring the family. The clubhouse will be open for breakfast before the race.
As the club is in a remote location, the entrance gate is kept locked, however should you wish to drop your boat off at the club the day before the event or even camp overnight (bearing in mind the main London-Plymouth railway line runs past the club), the Commodore who lives only a few miles from the club will be available to let you in. His phone numbers are; mobile 07837 129087 or home 01626 890496. Also please note the entrance to the club is through a low bridge, so vehicles over about 1.55m such as 4x4s and people carriers will have to be parked outside in the lay-by (there is plenty of room).
We look forward to seeing you.
